1 Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC & Energy Labelling Directive 2010/30/EU State of Play Eurovent General Assembly 1 June 2012

2 Energy efficiency policy Europe 2020 Strategy: objectives on employment, innovation, education, social inclusion and climate/energy Flagship Initiative Resource Efficient Europe Europe 2020 Targets: Reduce greenhouse gas levels by 20% Increase share of renewables to 20% Reduce energy consumption by 20% Current estimates show the EU is not on track to achieve its target of reducing its estimated energy consumption Communication Energy Efficiency Plan Energy 2020 (March 2011) Communication Energy Roadmap 2050 (December 2011)

3 Energy efficiency instruments Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC Energy Labelling Directive 2010/30/EU Energy Star programme for office equipment Ecolabel Regulation (EC) No 66/2010 (voluntary endorsement label for top performers) Green Public Procurement - GPP i.e. work programme for EU GPP and the EU Ecolabel for 18 product groups Energy performance of Buildings Directive recast 2010/31/EU Energy Efficiency Directive Proposal (June 2011 to step up Member States efforts to use energy more efficiently at all stages (energy saving schemes, public sector to lead)

4 Sustainable Product Policy Instruments Energy efficiency of products main instruments Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC: «framework» defining the «rules» for setting product-specific requirements/legislation on energy efficiency and further parameters. Energy Labelling Directive 2010/30/EU: «framework» defining the «rules» for setting productspecific requirements/legislation on standard information of the consumption of energy and other resources Other related instruments Ecolabel: The EU Ecolabel helps identify products and services that have a reduced impact on the environment throughout their life cycle, from the extraction of raw material through to production, use and disposal. Green Public Procurement: Voluntary instrument. GPP can help stimulate a critical mass of demand for more sustainable goods and services which otherwise would be difficult to get onto the market.

5 Ecodesign Directive 2009/125/EC EU s main legal instrument to improve the environmental performance of energy-related products Exemption for the automotive sector regulated in the type-approval legislation Framework Directive requirements on product-by-product basis via: Implementing measures, or Voluntary agreements Implementing measures only for products with: Significant environmental aspects Significant potential for improvement Significant trade and sales volume (indicative threshold: units per year) Based on Life-cycle approach

6 Product Groups Ecodesign and Labelling - results achieved 39 'Lots' with some 50 product groups to carry out preparatory studies. 14 Ecodesign Regulations and 6 Energy Labelling Regulations have been adopted so far. 10 measures under preparation for adoption in new preparatory studies just started (motors not covered by Reg 640/2009, special purpose pumps and compressors).

12 Commission Work Methodology Competence for Ecodesign Directive (Energy-using Products, EuP, or Energy-related Products, ErP): jointly DG ENER & DG ENTR Periodically, DGs ENER/ENTR commission consultants to examine potential "Lots" of products to address Working Plan issued re. "Lots": last one period , Oct 2008: COM (2008)660. New Working Plan imminent Philosophy of sharing out "Lots": B2B products = ENTR, consumer products = ENER Each Lot has a PREPARATORY STUDY commissioned for it

13 Ecodesign Work programme (provisional) Priority product groups: Optional product groups: Window products Steam boilers ( < 50MW) Power cables Enterprises' servers, storage and ancillary equipment Smart appliances/meters Wine storage appliances Positive displacement pumps Fractional horse power motors under 200W Heating controls Lighting controls/systems Thermal insulation products for buildings Combined energy savings potential would amount to around 2000 PJ (555 TWh) per year by Power generating equipment: Inclusion of this product group with substantial saving potential was requested by some stakeholders. Therefore a specific study assessing the potential of power generating equipment under 50MW will be launched.

14 Other new actions Methodology: Revised and extended Ecodesign Methodology for Energy Related Products endorsed by the Consultation Forum on 19 January 2012: Standardisation: Call for proposals for support to NGOs and for Commission services in standardisation. Launch of tender foreseen for 3 rd quarter Market surveillance: Annual market surveillance collections exercise launched in Better understanding on how Member States carry out market surveillance, identify common problems, help deciding on possible further actions. Helpdesk: support in informing e.g. consumers, companies and compliance authorities on ecodesign and energy labelling matters. Launch of tender foreseen for 3rd quarter 2012.

15 Review Ecodesign and Energy Labelling Ecodesign review in 2012: Result of the Evaluation Study and possible way forward discussed at a Horizontal Consultation Forum on 19 April 2012 Provisional conclusions: the Directive achieves its main policy objectives. It is too early to evaluate the full effects of the Directive (implementing measures not yet in place sufficiently long time). Energy Labelling review in 2014: Launch of studies on the impact of implementing measures, support actions, standardisation, market surveillance in etc to support the review in First behavioural study concerning Energy Labelling, in collaboration with DG SANCO, to be finished on Autumn Further developments to be taken into account: Resource Efficiency Roadmap, Product Environmental Footprint, Material Efficiency, Critical Raw Materials, Sustainable Product Policy, etc.

16 Specific Product Groups: Air conditioning COMMISSION Ecodesign REGULATION (EU) No 206/2012 of 6 March 2012 for air conditioners and comfort fans on (<12kW, ENER Lot 10) Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No 626/2011 of 4 May 2011 for the energy labelling of air conditioners Preparatory Study ENTR Lot 6 Part Air conditioning; 3 rd Stakeholder Meeting in April, study to be finalised soon Three policy scenarios of energy performance MEPS will be proposed in terms of SEER and EER, three tiers basis 2015, 2017 and 2019 Products: chillers (electric air-cooled, electric water-cooled </> 400 kw, and air-to-air air conditioners (incl. split systems, VRF systems and package airto-air air) Expected savings in electricity 4.3 TWh for air conditioning chillers and 5.9 TWh for air-to-air air conditioners in 2025 ENTR Lot 6 studies have been led in parallel to and ENER Lot 21 preparatory study on central heating products using hot air to distribute heat (other than CHP). Proposal to combine ENTR Lot 6 Airco Part with ENER Lot 21 impact assessment study, Consultation Forum

17 Specific Product Groups: Ventilation Preparatory Study ENER Lot 10 Working Document has been issued in 2010 and has been discussed, an additional independent study was provided on ventilation units Products relevant to this working document include roof, window and wall ventilation units, heat recovery ventilation systems and domestic range hoods Preparatory Study ENTR Lot 6 Part Ventilation; 3rd Stakeholder Meeting in April, to be finalised soon. Scope: mechanical ventilation units with fans > 125 W, single-fan exhaust units (CEXH), and double-fan balanced units (air handling units (AHUs) and central heat recovery ventilation) units (CHRV). Roughly 50% of the savings on electricity consumption can be attributed to measures under the Ecodesign Fan Regulation 327/2011. Roughly savings attributed to ventilation:, comparable to around 100 TWh in 2025 (ErP, not only EuP) Proposal to combine ENTR Lot 6 Ventilation Part with ENER Lot 10 (impact assessment study, Consultation Forum scheduled for 23 October 2012)

18 Specific Product Group: Refrigeration Preparatory Study ENTR Lot 1, Products included in this Lot are: 1. Non household storage cabinets 2. Blast cabinets 3. Walk-in cold rooms 4. Refrigeration process chillers 5. Condensing units Now in the impact assessment phase, set to be completed in November 2012 All products except professional storage cabinets will be subject only to Ecodesign, with a simple information requirement for blast cabinets For professional storage cabinets, a widespread product (Over 400,000 units sold each year), there will be both an Ecodesign and an Energy labelling regulation In their case, the first regulatory step (Tier 1) foreseen by the Prep study envisages energy savings of 25 to 30%. This may lead to a purchase price increase of up to 10%; however, the life cycle costs would be reduced by 10-20% over the lifetime of the products. Savings of about 2.4 TWh are estimated for 2020
